Friday Fun Link – MusicLink.fm (and a Couple Other Ways To Listen to Music Online)

MusicLink is a new site that gives a simplied way to listen to albums that are available on the popular streaming service, GrooveShark.  There are other similar sites out there for streaming music – Last.fm, Pandora (not available in Canada unless you set up a VPN or otherwise get around their IP identification) and Spotify which isn’t available in North America but some say might be the future of music online.

I quite often listen to AccuRadio when I want something a bit more random,  when I know I’ll be listening for a longer period of time and/or when I  want to listen to a specific type of music (tonight was Cuban – more on that later!)

And of course, YouTube is also a very good source for all types of music and audio files in general (and with a bit of help, you can easily create an MP3 file from any video to download to your local computer so you don’t have to always stream the file online or worry about a clip being removed.)

What’d I miss?

    I just discovered itunes radio, but even that presents the same problem as those suggestions above: internet radio seems to be very American-centric. Besides the three CBC radio stations, I’ve always had a hard time finding good streaming music/radio that has a lot of awesome Canadian content.

    Maybe I’m missing something. Suggestions for Canadian online music sites?

    Iceberg Radio used to be one I’d listen to on occasion for some CanCon.
